Fast emerging data science and engineering technologies such as data analytics, artificial intelligence, and big data infrastructure boost the transformative impact of big data on businesses, industries and society.
The BEng(DS&E) programme is a professional degree in Data Science and Engineering offered by the Department of Computer Science, with support from the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science, Department of Mathematics, and Faculty of Law. It provides a solid foundation for students pursuing career and research in the data science and data engineering discipline.
The curriculum is built upon a fine combination of foundation courses in data science, computing, mathematics, statistics, and law, and is designed to provide students with advanced training in both theory and practice in Data Science and Engineering.
It is also unique in its emphasis on data privacy, ethical and legal issues for the data science profession, and privacy-preserving techniques. You may also pursue a minor in a data-intensive field (e.g., GIS in Geography, BIM in architecture, and biomedical data analysis), thus bridging domain-specific knowledge with data science and engineering skills.
This programme aims to nurture professionals who are equipped with core knowledge and technologies in data science and practical training in data engineering, and are capable and passionate in driving different disciplines to excel in the era of big data.
The programme offers graduates new and exciting career choices in the fastest-growing job positions like data engineer/architect, data scientist, data analyst, machine learning engineer, big data engineer, business analyst, and information security analyst.
